Half milk & half water today, idk, I had it with just hot water last time and I can’t decide which I liked better (although I kept smelling/tasting nori without the milk :P) but …yum! I’m not awake enough to rate things. I like not having to worry about steeping with matcha. MORNING ADVANTAGES.

I have more pearls from Teavivre if you want to try to compare?

Ozli

Oooh. Wanna do a switch? Or have you had this one?

Cavocorax

I don’t think I have? I don’t think I stole any when I sent it to you, did I? But I’d be interested if you have enough!

Ozli

Cool I will add em!

Cavocorax

Thanks. Let me know what else you’d like to try! I’ll let you know if I can’t do it, but there’s lots of room still in my envelope.

I’m out of practise with timing steeps so I wandered off and did other things until I remembered I had this tea on. K liked it, too. It’s not as peppery as it could be but it is definitely yum.

PS. HI!

Nothing wrong with being a seasonal tea drinker so long as you pop by. :)

drank Professor Grey by Della Terra Teas
299 tasting notes

LOL, I should have read reviews before buying this but I lucked out because I like it. Not an EG at allllll. It’s very lapsangy and smells SO GOOD and cedary like a sauna. Mmmmmm.

It’s also full of junk?? I opened the bag and was like HUH. They put the wrong tea in & mis-labeled? There are shiny silver balls and sprinkles and chocolate chips and flowery bits and and and???? Not very Professory, I have to say. But it smelled lapsangy, so I thought: STILL A MORNING TEA! :D?

And it is very good. The DT lapsang I have kinda hurts my tum a bit? I have to reeeeally be in the mood. But this one is gentler so I can see having it more often.

But it is NOT an EG. Bergamot is AWOL.

What? That’s weird. Sounds like a grab bag of tea!

If Lime Kool-aid were a tea, it’d be this tea. Yeah, Lime Chiffon is BETTER…. but this one has CAFFEINE. :D? I have a feeling this would make a great iced tea, too. Also, I was distracted on Ravelry and forgot this steeping & no harm done ;) ;) that’s always a plus, for me.

Ooooh Ravelry! :O I’ve been knitting up a storm – now I need to figure out how to switch colours or… well I hope I don’t ruin the whole thing. :P

Ozli

Cavocorax BE BRAVE :P :P …I’m making hat. Shhh, it’s a Pikachu hat for the child ;)

TEB, sweet! ;)

Cavocorax

Oooh that’s awesome dude! How are you going to keep it secret?

Ozli

I just told him it’s a yellow hat – everything else adds on after ;)

drank Hawaiian Dreams by Della Terra Teas
299 tasting notes

I haven’t really liked this tea overall and have had it many times without rating it because I always think it should be amazing and then it’s not as coconut-fruity as I expect. I dunno what I did right today, but I really enjoyed my cup! Maybe it’s just a good day for DTT? A package from them was waiting in my mailbox, too!)

Cavocorax

Woo! New tea! Teas that are better than you expected! !!!’s all around.

Ozli

I was saving the rest for iced tea to try it out that way, I was so meh about that tea, but now…? I dunno man! Sometimes there’s a magic, I think. :P

Cavocorax

Totally! I’ve been having some tea blahs lately and now I’m afraid to rate things because normally I enjoy them more. Gonna go back to basic good teas before messing around with the fancy ones I’ve been trying.

Had this yesterday, one of my fave Murchie’s teas. The flavouring just works so well with the black tea.

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
